Ohio State will open up NCAA Tournament play this weekend against Oral Roberts. It figures to be a pretty manageable matchup. However, things figure to get significantly tougher afterward with Florida or Virginia Tech waiting in the Round of 32. Other notable teams in the region include Baylor, Arkansas, Purdue, and Villanova.
The Buckeyes may have fallen short on Sunday for the Big Ten Tournament title, but it’s still been a wildly successful season in Columbus. And the team now has a chance to build off that with a manageable route in the NCAA Tournament. It should be a fun ride.
BTPowerhouse will have plenty to follow on this and all of the Big Ten teams in the NCAA Tournament in the days ahead.
